“Food inexpensive and OK, entertainment 1st rate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

The dueling piano bar room was full, so we ate on the patio. At 9:30 pm, they had a four piece, bluegrass/folk country band. Top notch. Liked them more than the dueling pianos. Less crowded, easier to hear, and quite a talented group. Plus, the hurricanes are always great.

“Great food, great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Pat Obrien's has at Citywalk has a great New Orleans feel. Once you step inside, you don't feel like you are in a theme park. When we were on the outside patio, I didn't even realize that on the other side of the wall was a busy road, parking garage, etc. It's a very nice environment.

Our server was great even when the place was busy. I ordered a beer and he was nice enough to inform me that it was a two for one happy hour special and that I could have it in two small glasses or one big one. That was a nice big beer!

The food is also very reasonably priced for being in a theme park environment. Two of us ate for under $50 including drinks and tip. My wife is also gluten-intolerant and they made a special dish for her that wasn't even on the gluten-free menu. It was great! The bar has a nice cozy feel. The piano area looked fun, but we were outside, so I didn't get the full feel.

If you are already at Universal, it's worth the stop. If you are a Florida resident, go to the park after 6 for free/discounted parking, have a nice dinner, and go outside for some dessert afterward.

“Good stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

I would not visit here for the food, drinks maybe. Whenever they have someone on the piano it's pretty entertaining, I would go during the evening and have a few drinks and listen to the music. Try the beignets while at it.
